Inspired by the I.P.As of the American North East. Pours golden in colour, with a slight haze and a lingering tight, white head. On the nose you are greeted straight away with notes of pine, peach and passionfruit. On the palate apricot and naval orange shine through with a well-balanced bitterness backed up by a subtle sweetness from the South Pacific hops and the unique yeast we use. Full bodied and medium carbonation make this IPA surprisingly easy to drink.
With blackberries added to the brewkettle towards the end of the boil and more fresh berries added in the cellar there is a wonderful, sharp tartness to this IPA. The upfront bitterness is countered by the slight sweetness from the berries.
